                                      What a find! We were heading out of Botswana back into SA and needed a one night stopover. Not expecting much we were pleasantly surprised to find a neat, well organised, fully kitted spot with friendly and helpful staff. We were 3 families staying in the 4-sleeper log cabins. Yes, they are tiny but the beds were comfy and we loved the surroundings. Communal bathroom and kitchen were clean and had everything we would need. The kids loved all the animals (pig, ducks, chickens) and even had a quick dip in the pool.

                                      We had a fantastic time at mokolodi backpackers, simon and his team are fantastic, however i would not book through safari now again as there service is absolutely appalling... never again, rather book directly

                                      This was not our 1st visit and will not be our last. Hendrik has gone out of his way to give advice and support when our vehicle battery suddenly "died". The staff is friendly and efficient. We love this spot.
